Turkey Hopes To Resume Gas Supply To Greece By Wed-Minister
"We supply gas to Greece when we receive it," Yildez said.
Turkish media reported that Turkey halted its gas supply to Greece Tuesday, citing Turkish energy ministry officials.
Turkish state news agency Anadolu said that gas had been cut from Azerbaijan and reduced from Iran "due to a technical failure between the two countries compressor stations. The flow of energy to Turkish households had not been affected."
Kenan Yavuz, chief executive of Turkish energy company Turkas told NTV: "this is a technical problem which will soon be resolved."
Turkey is dependent on energy supplies from abroad and it imports natural gas from Iran , Russia and Azerbaijan . Azerbaijan is the country's second largest gas supplier after Russia .
In late December, Turkey and Azerbaijan signed a deal for the construction of a new joint gas pipeline project, the Trans Anadolu pipeline, which will stretch from Turkey 's eastern border to its western border, with the aim of exporting Azerbaijani natural gas to Europe .
